Bright gold. Energetic aromas of green apple, jasmine, minerals and lemon zest.
Dry and nervy, with brisk acidity and a saline nuance giving energy and lift to its citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Vibrant and impressively pure chardonnay, finishing spicy, long and dry, with an intriguing floral quality.

A terrific wine
Along with Morlet's Ma Douce, this is the best Chardonnay I've drunk in the past year or two. I love this style and wish more were made like this. It is full flavored and complex while remaining light on its feet and delicate - go figure. I plan to finish the rest of the bottle tonight with fresh crab and will look for more to buy.
